the article wa already pst in the news share, but the part i totally forgot, was on TUF7 when it looked like riddle and dante might fight, dante claimed he'd retire if riddle ever beat him......obviously he can just say he was kidding or whatever, but he did say it on national tv..........

either way dante didnt really show me much n the show, and i wouldnt miss him if he did retire...


WARRRRR CHIPPER!!!!!!!!

dante is a one dimensional fighter with his JJ. I would rate him a blue belt in terms of his JJ. Its very sloppy. Will dante retire? i doubt it. I think chipper will sprawl and brawl to a tko/ko though. WARRR CHIPPPPPPPPPER!

I wouldn't say that you have made your parley safe at all. Hazlett's striking and JJ advantage is going to make for a tough night for Burkman. Riddle has been training with CB at ACS, a great camp. Riddle's downside is that he is very green... and a good camp should help him with that. Riddle has alot of physical potential. Rivera is not a fighter who should ever be thought of as UFC quality and I don't see him doing anything to an improving Riddle.

He didn't seem to have any plans of retiring, after Riddle owned his ass.

The fact that he said that in the first place goes to show how immautre Dante is and he couldn't even back up his shit talking. I think he should retire.
